The world today looks very different than anything in recent memory. The economy at large has changed dramatically, resulting in changes in the personal economy of each and every one of us.
The idea of building a “personal economy” around a job, especially when that job needs to provide a permanent means of earning a living, is no longer the norm. The chances of “owning” a job for life are decreasing over time.
It is possible that the current job market is motivating you to consider self-employment. Or, perhaps your job is standing in the way of realizing your maximum growth and potential. Or, you may be retired (or planning for retirement) and seeking a productive way to use your time and money! Regardless of your particular circumstance, you believe that self-employment will prove more meaningful, more pleasurable and potentially more rewarding than working for someone else. Changes are you’re right!
